For moms/dad with kids thinking of visiting. The first day, we arrived for twilight snow boarding and tubing with our kids (sunday). It was amazing fun and Jeff at the tube area was great! Day 2, not so much. We arrived to find the kid's snow play area closed. Of course, we checked the slope report before we arrived, like any reasonable person would. Surprise!!!! that information is not on there. Infact, when I asked the customer service person to find it on the website and show it to me, she literally had to click through each tab at the top and scroll through them all trying to find where it says "only open weekends". Instead of offering a solution for my now crying three year olds who only want to play in the snow, she tells me it's posted at the location of the play area. I asked her what good that would do if we're already here? Needless to say, she was not at all helpful nor accomodating. She offered no solutions except: take them on a nature walk. (Are you kidding me). Its the week of spring break for many states, why would this be closed? Why is it not listed on the slope report? I also noted several employees who looked like they needed something to do, standing around, texting, listening to music on devices, phones, etc. Final note, if you have children smaller than 6, there is nothing for them to do m-f except tubing, which is paid for by 90 min increments. (Unless they can ski or snow board). ~ from Texas. Parents of two 8 year olds and two 3 year olds.
